Awo Quaison-Sackey heads AQ Solutions of New Haven, Conn., say Africa one day can rival India as a place for Western companies to set up offices to handle payrolls, entering data, word processing and other computer-based tasks.

AQ Solutions has 30 of its 35 employees in Ghana, where they develop and maintain software for clients including General Electric and Northeast Utilities.

The 48-year-old Quaison-Sackey, who left Ghana 21 years ago, said her company periodically brings its Ghanian workers to the United States for a visit.

"They get a chance to see what it's really like here and take something back home with them," she said. "Everybody is expanded by that type of experience. It's bound to trickle down."
